"We focus on the present Truth — what Jesus is doing now. . ."
Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ. It is great to be alive and to join together with you in fellowship around God's unchanging Word.
This week the US State Department hit the ball of hypocrisy out of the park concerning the First Amendment: "Congress shall make no law . . . abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press"—a universal human right—labelling media outlets 'foreign agents' after the US Department of Justice required the Russian outlet Russia Today America to register as a 'foreign agent' in a tit for tat reflex to a new Russian law issued following demands upon RT and Sputnik News. Truthful reporting and criticism based on verifiable facts is seen as a unfriendly. China has also raised US ire.
In this issue we follow eight topical news stories by for our feature article, "Building New Jerusalem."
This Newsletter serves those of like precious faith. Whoever will receive the truth is welcome to feed their soul from the waters of the River of Life. Everything here presented should be confirmed personally in your own Bible.
Is Washington the Most Corrupt Government in History?
November 29, 2017 — Robert Mueller, a former director of the FBI who is working as a special prosecutor "investigating" a contrived hoax designed by the military/security complex and the DNC to destroy the Trump presidency, has yet to produce a scrap of evidence that Russiagate is anything but orchestrated fake news. As William Binney and other top experts have said, if there is evidence of Russiagate, the NSA would have it. No investigation would be necessary. So where is the evidence?
It is a revelation of how corrupt Washington is that a fake scandal is being investigated while a real scandal is not. The fake scandal is Trump's Russiagate. The real scandal is Hillary Clinton's uranium sale to Russia. No evidence for the former exists. Voluminous evidence for Hillary's scandal lies in plain view.
Why are the clearly false charges against Trump being investigated and the clearly true charges against Hillary not being investigated? The answer is that Hillary with her hostility toward Russia and her denunciation of Russian President Putin as the "New Hitler" is not a threat to the budget and power of the US military/security complex, while Trump's aim of normalizing relations with Russia would deprive the military/security complex of the "enemy" it requires to justify its massive budget and power.
Why hasn't President Trump ordered the Justice Department to investigate Hillary? Is the answer that Trump is afraid the military/security complex will assassinate him? Why hasn't the Justice Department undertaken the investigation on its own? Is the answer that Trump's government is allied with his enemies? . . .

Islamic State a 'Geopolitical Tool'? US looks to SE Asia to unleash its ISIS-Daesh Hordes
November 27, 2017 — The United States has expertly cultivated a deadly sectarian divide in Myanmar—turning nationalist extremists against the nation's Rohingya minority and using the resulting violence to undermine the nation's military while propelling [City of London agent] Aung San Suu Kyi and her National League for Democracy (NLD) into power. The violence also compromises constructive economic and diplomatic ties between Myanmar and China.
In the Philippines, ISIS-linked militants managed to seize an entire city in the nation's southern region. The money, weapons, and militants required for this feat clearly required state sponsorship. Just as in Syria, ISIS in the Philippines is linked to Saudi Arabia which serves as an intermediary for US money, weapons, supplies, and directives.
The conflicts in both Myanmar and the Philippines has given the US the initiative in serving as "mediator" in Myanmar, and providing "military assistance" in the Philippines. Both moves serve to give Washington a tighter grip over both nations at a time when the whole of Southeast Asia moves further out from under the shadow of US hegemony and into a more constructive and mutually beneficial embrace with Beijing . . .
To bookend US efforts to engineer a sectarian divide in Thailand, it appears that organizations like International Crisis Group are creating a narrative to explain soon-to-be ISIS activity in Thailand. The abhorrent nature of ISIS operations will play well into the anti-Islam propaganda promoted by US-backed networks in Thailand's northeast. Somewhere in the middle—US policymakers hope—a self-sustaining "clash of civilizations" can be sparked, and consume Thailand's historically impressive national unity . . .

Saudi-Israeli Friendship is driving the Rest of the Middle East Together
November 20, 2017 — At a regional level, Trump first supported the Saudi crusade against Qatar, resolved with Riyadh not getting Qatar to accede to any of its advanced demands. During the crisis, Doha approached Tehran and Moscow, who immediately took advantage of the situation to establish trade relations and commence negotiations with Qatar to tame its terrorist influence in the region, especially in the Syrian conflict. Turkey and Qatar have practically announced a military alliance . . . that includes China, Russia, Iran, Turkey, Syria, Lebanon, Iraq, and Qatar . . . opposed to Saudi dictates and Israel's efforts to foment war with Iran.
With the US withdrawal from the region, as is increasingly evident from Trump's reluctance to embark on a Middle East conflict, Israel and Saudi Arabia are increasing their desperate cries against Iran . . . The visit of King Salman to Russia, and the four meetings between Putin and Netanyahu, give the idea of which capital is in charge in the region . . . an epochal change that further isolates Riyadh and Tel Aviv . . . that represent the heart of chaos and terror . . .
US influence is on the decline, and Xi Jinping and Putin have shown great interest in the future of the region . . . Russian and Iranian militaries, together with the Chinese economic grip on the region, have shown a collective intention to replace years of war, death and chaos with peace, prosperity and wealth . . . the multipolar world, together with Trump's America First policy, seems to have hit hardest those countries that placed all their bets on the continuing economic and military dominance of the United States in the region.

EU Member States take Major Step toward a European Army
November 14, 2017 — The European Union has taken a major step toward developing the capacity to wage war in the future independently of and, if necessary, against the United States.
Foreign and defence ministers from 23 of the 28 EU member states signed a framework document on a common defence policy in Brussels on Monday. Along with Britain, which will leave the EU in 2019, only four smaller countries—Denmark, Ireland, Malta and Portugal—did not sign on to the deal. However, they can do so at any time. With the "agreement on permanent structured cooperation" (PESCO), the EU states committed themselves to close cooperation in the development and purchase of weapons, and in making available troops and equipment for joint military interventions. "PESCO is an ambitious, binding and inclusive European legal framework for investment in the security and defence of the EU's territory and citizens," the document states. The key issue is to make Europe more efficient, capable of acting and quicker, said a representative of the German defence ministry.
The agreement signifies an escalation of European militarism. The first of 20 conditions to which all parties must commit is a regular increase in military spending. At least 20 percent of this must be directed to the purchase of new weapons. For its part, the EU intends to contribute €500 million annually and €1 billion after 2021 to joint arms projects . . .

Comment: US and Saudi support for the Muslim Rohingya is based on the US declared "pivot to Asia." For US strategists, it is a way to block Chinese influence in a strategic region. The US is "the image unto the beast," and as P.M. Netanyahu said, "Once we squeeze all we can out of the United States, it can dry up and blow away." Preparing for Daniel 9:27 and Revelation 13:11-18; 17:11-18?
Australia's Unnecessary Wars
October 16, 2017 — Australian governments find it easy to go to war—that's Professor Henry Reynolds' assessment of the role war plays in our society. In this year's Brisbane Peace Lecture he says that rather than debate the rationale for the wars we fight, we obsess about our own performance, desperate to prove to our "great and powerful friends" that we "punch above our weight".
Australia has been at war for 60 of the 78 years since 1939. Full story: radio.abc.net.au

The FCC's Order will End Net Neutrality and Break the Internet
November 22, 2017 — The FCC is scheduled to vote on this dangerous proposal at its meeting on December 14 . . . You can read the full text here.
Under the existing regulations the FCC passed in 2015, we have clear bright-line rules prohibiting harmful behaviour by phone and cable companies. Those rules are coupled with the strong but flexible safeguards that the 2015 order built in for other schemes ISPs might use now or invent in the near future to interfere with internet traffic. The new order leaves internet users entirely without protections, relying on ISPs to behave and avoid exploiting their status as gatekeepers to the entire internet . . . nothing short of legalizing internet blocking and discrimination by cable and phone companies . . . pay-for-play prioritization and internet slow lanes . . .

Autism, Mercury, Aluminium and Vaccine-induced Encephalopathy
November 30, 2017 — Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD, Learning Disorders, Epilepsy, Asthma, Diabetes, Autoimmune Disorders, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and many other chronic illnesses affect fully-vaccinated American children. The epidemic of chronic disorders among US children, now reported to represent well over 1/3 of fully-vaccinated children in America is likely iatrogenic (i.e., physician-caused, prescription drug-induced, vaccine-induced, medical/surgical treatment-caused).
But the corporate medical and pharmaceutical industries both go through all sorts of contortions to deny responsibility for the epidemic, even to the point of lying, black-listing whistleblowers, publishing fraudulent journal articles, smearing the tellers of inconvenient truths, refusing to publish certain authors that have disproved certain doctrinal medical beliefs, etc. Corporate medicine and Big Pharma have even stooped so low as to regularly hire pestering trolls that try to create doubt (a la Big Tobacco) and falsely debunk unwelcome truths that threaten the profits or reputations of various Big Businesses associated with Big Medicine . . .

Chemtrails: Aerosol and Electromagnetic Weapons in the Age of Nuclear War
June 1, 2004 — North America is now suffering its
seventhtwentieth year of conspicuous and dangerous electromagnetic and aerosol operations conducted by the US government under the guise of national security. Concerned citizens watch in fear as military tankers discolour the skies with toxic chemicals that morph into synthetic clouds. We continually witness bizarre meteorological occurrences as powerful electromagnetic devices manipulate the jet stream and individual storm fronts to create artificial weather and climatic conditions. Black operations projects embedded within these aerosol missions are documented to sicken and disorient select populations with biological test agents and psychotronic mind/mood control technologies . . .
Dumping tons of particulate matter from aircraft has geo-engineered our planetary atmosphere into a highly charged, electrically-conductive plasma useful for military projects. The air we breathe is laden with asbestos-sized synthetic fibres and toxic metals, including barium salts, aluminium, and reportedly, radioactive thorium. These materials act as electrolytes to enhance conductivity of military radar and radio waves.10 Poisonous on par with arsenic and a proven suppressant of the human immune system . . . Few Americans understand the extent of carnage inflicted in their name across the planet . . . aircraft have been co-opted to assist the military in consummating Project Cloverleaf . . . sunscreen particulate materials can be run through jet engines . . . have a wonderful, barium-dried summer under a synthetic tarpaulin of aluminium-white, particle-laden, electrically-charged aviation scum that passes for sky.

Building New Jerusalem
The Bible is the love story of two hearts in one mind, "and before you call, I will answer; and while you are yet speaking, I will hear" (Isaiah 65:24). I Corinthians 2:9, "As it is written in Isaiah 64:4, Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, neither have the things which God has prepared for them that love Him entered into the heart of man".
For two millennia Jesus has been building a House for His beloved Bride, one precious "lively stone" at a time. After our millennial honeymoon and the restitution of all things He will take us Home. Had He been able to commence construction before Calvary He might have engaged carpenters, plumbers, tilers and painters. But He is Light and "we are all the children of Light, and the children of the day" so on the Day of Pentecost He began building us as a city set on a hill fifteen hundred miles high, the Light of the world that cannot be hid.
To this purpose "He gave gifts unto men, ordaining some as apostles; and some as prophets; and some as evangelists; and some as pastors and some as teachers, to equip the saints for the task of ministering toward the building up of that House of Light—the Body of Christ—until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ" (Ephesians 4:11-13).
"We are fellow-citizens with the Pentecostal saints, built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ is the chief corner stone" (Ephesians 2:20; Revelation 3:12). Being in God's mind before anything that is made was made this "house not made with hands is eternal in the heavens." Throughout the Church Ages this building, measured from the absent Capstone, joined and knit together in its construction through faith in the PART Word of seven successive masterbuilders, is at last reunited with the Headstone (Revelation 2-3; I Corinthians 13:10).
Plans for erecting this eternal building accompany the specifications in II Peter 1:1-16 and stress "like precious faith" which is "the common faith" (I Peter 1:2; Titus 1:4), "the present Truth" of every Message of the hour. "By these precious promises we might be partakers of the divine nature which is the evidence of Christ in us, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through the desire for that which is forbidden." The predominant virtue evident in each historic Church Age signifies a standard the Spirit of the Lord lifted up against the enemy when he came in like a flood (Isaiah 59:19).
Peter referred to his experience with James and John on Mount Transfiguration where he witnessed a preview of Christ's second or (Gk.) 'parousia' Coming to Israel preceded by a Moses and an Elijah, and heard the Voice from heaven, "This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased" (II Peter 2:16-18). Having instructed the saints to obey the Absolute of scriptural prophecy and reminding them that the Word of God comes only through a vindicated prophet, we ask which Old and New Testament prophets taught that God is a trinity? Peter warned us against false prophets and unregenerate teachers; he defined their carnal character and fearful end, then prophesied against twenty-first century miscegenation (naturally and spiritually), now called multiculturalism—a global repetition of the original sin for which God destroyed the old world in the days of Noah (Genesis 6:1-4; II Peter 2:4-5). In Matthew 24:37-39 Jesus said this would be the besetting sin today in the second or 'parousia' Coming of the Son of man.
His second notable prophecy applicable to today is the general endorsement of homosexuality and lusts of the flesh "as it was in the days of Lot" (Luke 17:28-30; II Peter 2:6). Such behaviour contrary to nature which for thousands of years was repudiated as a matter of course is now openly condoned without shame. We discussed these matters last Sunday in our study of the Book of Jude.
In chapter three Peter prophesied a third notable indicator of Christ's second or 'parousia' Coming—the scoffing unbelief of apostates (II Peter 3:1-4; Matthew 24:48-51; Romans 11:32; II Thessalonians 2:3; II Timothy 3:1 – 4:4; Jude 18; Revelation 3:15-17). Seek ye the truth, you scoffers who demand, "Where is the fulfilment of the promise? It ought to have transpired before now if ever it was to take place. I doubt it ever will"!
Believe the signs prophesied thousands of years ago for this our day, and repent of your undisguised opposition to the "present Truth"—so thoroughly vindicated. Such ignorance is voluntary. Even churchgoers, unwilling to recognize revelation, do not bother to read the written Word. Verses 5-7 prove "all things do NOT continue as they were: for when they maintain this, it escapes their notice that by the Word of God the heavens existed long ago, and the earth was formed standing out of the water and by water: through which the world that then was, being flooded, perished: but the present heavens and the earth are kept in store by the same Word, being reserved for fire, kept for the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men".
In verses 1-18 we find three heavens and three earths. Now "the Lord is not slack concerning His promise," any apparent delay is not owing to His inability but to His long-suffering grace. Recounting a vision in Revelation 21:1-7 John tells the same story as Peter, "I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth were renewed; and there was no more sea. And I saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband."
"And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is among men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself shall be among them, and be their God. And He shall wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there will no longer be any death, neither sorrow, nor crying, or pain: for the former things have passed away."
"And He who sits upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And He said, Write: for these Words are faithful and true. And He told me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give to one who thirsts of the fountain of the water of Life freely. He who overcomes shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be My son".
The words "passed away" in II Peter 3:10 and Revelation 21:1 and 4 mean "changed from one condition to another," not replaced but regenerated as your soul was renewed when you were born-again. In verses 10-12 Peter explains how the change will occur. "The day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise and the elements will melt with fervent heat, and the earth and its works will be burned up. Since all these things will be destroyed in this way, what manner of persons ought you to be in all holy conduct and godliness, looking for and hastening the coming of the Day of God, by reason of which the flaming heavens will be dissolved, and the material elements of the universe will flare and melt with intense heat" (Isaiah 34:4).
In Revelation 21:6 the Lord says, "It is done!" In essence, since God has made the declaration, it is as good as done. And the visions never fail. When the consummation shall be, God will rejoice over the work of His own hands, as at the completion of the first creation "God saw everything that He had made, and behold it was very good" (Genesis 1:31).
In Revelation 15:1 and 5-8 we read, "And I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvellous, seven angels having the seven last plagues; for in them is filled up the wrath of God . . . [the following three verses signify the 144,000 elect Israelites sealing their testimony in martyrdom (Matthew 23:33-36; 27:25; Revelation 6:11)]. And after that I looked, and, behold, the holy Place and the Holy of Holies of the heavenly tabernacle was opened: and the seven angels came out of the temple, having the seven plagues, clothed in pure and white linen, and having their breasts girded with golden girdles [as judges]. And one of the four living creatures gave unto the seven angels seven golden Vials full of the wrath of God, who lives forever and ever. And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God, and from His power; and no man is able to enter into the temple, till the plagues of the seven Vials are fulfilled."
These Vials are the antitype of the Old Testament ordeal of Jealousy of Numbers 5:11-31 applied to the church to distinguish the make-believers and unbelievers from the elect Bride of Jesus Christ. Israelites and Gentiles generally regard Christ's Church as the world church system and the 144,000 elect Israelites must recognize and distinguish their Queen from the worldly churches in order "to anoint the Most Holy," King and Queen (Daniel 9:24f).
These Vials have been poured out after every Church Age. Brother Branham called them an "investigation judgment" and a "temporary judgment." We live between the pouring out of the Sixth and Seventh Vials, the time of Christ's second or 'parousia' "Coming as a thief in the night," and Rome's "three unclean spirits like frogs" gathering of the kings of the earth and of the whole world throughout Laodicea to the present day by Fascism, Nazism and Communism. As we have read, "no man was able to enter into the temple [or be resurrected and glorified] till the seven plagues of the seven angels were fulfilled" (Revelation 15:1, 5-8).
In Revelation 16:17, "the seventh angel poured out his Vial into the air; and there came a great Voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, "It is done." The Christian dispensation of grace is over and the judgments will fall. The next four verses tell of an earthquake of unprecedented magnitude will sink Los Angeles and a 1,500 x 300-400 mile segment of earth's crust, many islands and mountains. The united States will be devastated and the US dollar and global economy will collapse into a depression worse than the Great Depression. In the brief 'hot stage' of World War II Israel will cease to be a military power. A mass exodus of self-styled Jews will see UN Resolution 181 of 1947 enforced and Palestine divided into three parts, allowing the children of Jacob to return to the Land of their Covenant while mainland USA will be invaded and briefly occupied before peace is restored under Roman one world government.
God's Prophet ministered in Los Angeles the last time on April 29, 1965. He said:
"We don't know what time, and you don't know what time, that this city one day is going to be laying out here in the bottom of this ocean.
"Oh, Capernaum," said Jesus, "thou who exalted into heaven, will be brought down into hell. For, if the mighty works had been done in Sodom and Gomorrah, it'd have been standing to this day." And Sodom, Gomorrah lays in the bottom of the Dead Sea. And Capernaum is in the bottom of the sea.
Thou city, who claims to be the city of the Angels, who has exalted yourself into heaven, and sent all the dirty, filthy things of fashions and things, till even the foreign countries come here to pick up our filth and send it away, to your fine churches and steeples, and so forth, the way you do. Remember, one day you'll be laying in the bottom of the sea, your great honeycomb under you right now. The wrath of God is belching right beneath you. How much longer He will hold this sandbar hanging out over that? When, that ocean out yonder, a mile deep, will slide in there, plumb back to the Salton Sea. It'll be worse than the last day of Pompeii. Repent, Los Angeles.
Repent, the rest of you, and turn to God. The hour of His wrath is upon the earth. Flee while there's time to flee, and come into Christ.
Let us pray. Dear God, when, in my spirit, is shaking, my heart is dropping teardrops of warning. Grant, O God, that men and women will not think of what I've said as a joke, and the church people will not think of it as something that was prejudice or against them. May they see, Lord, it's in love.
Thou barest me record, Almighty God, that up-and-down this coast I've went, year after year, proclaiming Your Word. Bear me record, O God, if it would happen tonight, I've told the Truth. Thou knowest this vision of the Bride is the Truth. I've took Your Name by it, Lord, and said it was THUS SAITH THE LORD. And I feel that I'm conscious, Lord, of what I'm doing.
So I pray Thee, Lord, in Jesus' Name, let people shake themselves, tonight, and flee from the wrath that is to come, for Ichabod is wrote over the doors and over the nations. A black check mark has come across it. The Spirit of God is grieved away from it, and they're weighed in the balances and found wanting. The feast of King Nebuchadnezzar has repeated again, with drunken parties and half-dressed women, calling themselves Christians (The Choosing of a Bride, p. 35:230 - 235).
God is terminating the Christian dispensation in unbelief as He terminated the dispensation of the Law (Romans 11:32; Revelation 3:15-17). In Isaiah 64:8-9, Israel entreated, "O Lord, you are our father; we are the clay. You are our potter; we are all the work of Your hand. Be not angry, Lord, beyond measure, and remember not our iniquity forever. Behold, consider, we are all Your people."
In response, the Lord declared, "I have allowed Myself to be sought out by those who did not ask for me; I was found by those who did not seek Me: I said, "Here am I, Here am I," to a nation that was not called by My Name." The Gentiles will be taken into covenant while "You Jews will leave your name for a curse to My chosen [Church of elect Israelites and Gentiles of Adam's race]: for the Lord God will slay you, and call His servants by another Name: [Mrs. Jesus Christ. Christians] (Isaiah 65:15; Jeremiah 29:19-23; Acts 11:26).
Blinded Israel and her imposters have been unable to recognize this fulfilment of prophecy in 2,500 years despite nature's revelation preached night and day to the ends of the world by the Gospel in the stars. "First Moses said, I will provoke you to jealousy by those who are not a nation, and I will infuriate you by a foolish nation. But Isaiah is very bold, and said, I have been found by those who did not seek Me; I have manifest Myself to those who did not ask for Me. But to Israel he said, All day long I have held out My hands to a disobedient and rebellious people" (Romans 10:14-21).
In advancing so unpopular a sentiment "Isaiah was very bold" implying in opposition to the Jews' plea "they are not all Israel who are of Israel" (Romans 2:28; 6-7; 11:1-31). The God of the Amen cannot change (Malachi 3:6; Hebrews 13:8); His severe dealing is judgment of sin (Isaiah 65:2-7). Yet the whole nation shall not be destroyed, only the wicked; a remnant will be saved. Speaking of New Jerusalem in the millennium where the Kingdom is restored to Israel God said, "he who blesses himself in the Land shall bless himself in the God of the Amen" [Jehovah of the Old Testament is Jesus of the New. One God who is the Alpha and the Omega. This is the Capstone revelation, the most important revelation in the whole Bible is that Jesus IS God, He and the Father are One; there is One God, and His Name is LORD JESUS CHRIST]; "and he who takes an oath in the Land shall swear by the God of the Amen [as opposed to the shadow of the Law]; because the former troubles [of the former earth] are forgotten, and hid from My eyes" (Isaiah 65:8-10, 11-16; II Corinthians 1:20; Revelation 3:14)!
"I will bring forth a seed out of Jacob, and out of Judah an inheritor of My mountains—all Israelites, NOT self-styled Jews—and My [144,000] elect shall inherit it, and My servants shall dwell there." In the millennium and in the renewed heavens and renewed earth Israel will enjoy universal blessedness such as they have prayed for (Isaiah 65:17-25), and God will dwell in us, His New Jerusalem.
By hyperbole Isaiah explains there will be neither marrying nor giving in marriage, no ageing, birth or death in the millennium. "We shall build houses, and inhabit them; plant vineyards and eat their fruit. We will not build and another inhabit, nor plant and another eat: for the days of My people shall be like the days of a tree [the longest-living object in nature], and My elect will enjoy the work of their hands for a thousand years. [The Millennium is a space of time]. They shall not labour in vain, nor bring forth for trouble; for they are the Seed of the blessed of the Lord [born the second time by faith in Jesus Christ], and their offspring [or converts] with them" (Isaiah 61:9; 66:8; Jeremiah 32:38-39; Acts 2:39).
Joseph was a type of Jesus Christ: rejected by his brethren, he married Asenath, the daughter of Potipherah priest of On, she bore him Manasseh and Ephraim; Joseph dismissed them to the palace before he revealed himself to His brethren. Christ married His Gentile Bride and she will be caught up into the palace before He reveals Himself to His brethren, 144,000 elect blood Israelites (Zechariah 12:8 – 13:9).
In explaining this mystery Brother Branham said, "God created all men; white men, black men, brown men, yellow men, every man. God created every man. He created the Gentile, created the Jew. He created all. It's all for His glory. And the Jews had to reject It, in order to take a Gentile Bride."
"That's the reason all these types are. So "the Gentile Bride and Her offsprings with Her," that glorious Pentecostal Church [of all Ages] washed in the Blood of the Lamb, with all the power of the resurrection living in them, will rise someday in the Rapture (in a moment, in a twinkling of an eye) to go be in the Presence of Jesus, while He returns back (and dismisses everything) to make Hisself known to His brethren" (The Revelation of Jesus Christ, p. 60:366-367; Isaiah 65:23).
In Isaiah 64:7, "No Israelite calls upon God's Name or bestirs himself to take hold of the Lord . . ." In Isaiah 65:12, "When God called, Israel did not answer; when He spoke they did not hear but did evil in His eyes, and chose what displeased Him." However, when Israel is born in one day, "Before they call, He will answer; and while they are yet speaking, He will hear. The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, and the lion shall eat straw like the ox: but dust shall be the Serpent's food. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain, says the Lord" (Isaiah 65:24-25).
Speaking of the midst of Daniel's Seventieth Week when the Lord opens Israel's eyes and ears Micah 7:16-17 states, "The nations shall see, let them despair of all their might: they shall lay their hands on their mouths, their ears shall be deaf. They shall lick the dust like a Serpent, like worms of the earth they shall come trembling out of their holes (Isaiah 49:23; Revelation 6:15-16) to the Lord our God whom they will revere, and they shall stand in awe of Him" (Psalm 72:9-11; Isaiah 45:25; Romans 14:11; Philippians 2:10).
Note the perpetual degradation of the Serpent who was originally an upright giant man-like creature. He had a place for a soul but without a soul he was pure animal. He was given to serve man but he allowed Satan to occupy that place and seduced Eve. Hereby Satan vicariously fathered Cain who was begotten of that wicked one (I John 2:13-14; 3:12; John 8:44; II Corinthians 11:2; Hebrews 12:8; Jude 14).
Genesis 3:13-15, "And the Lord God said to the woman, What is this that you have done? And the woman said, The Serpent beguiled me, and I believed him. And the Lord God said to the Serpent, Because you have done this, you will be the most cursed of all domestic animals, and wild beasts. Upon your belly you will go, and eat dust all the days of your life: and I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her offspring; it will strike your head, and you will strike his heel".
There is no evolution of species, and because scientists are generally intellectuals who do not believe the Bible they cannot find the "missing link" so-called, since God changed every bone in the Serpent's body and threw him on his belly.
The Pharisees who disputed with Jesus in John 8 were Abraham's seed but inevitably non-Semitic Edomite Jews, not Semitic Israelites of Jacob's seed. Conversant with the original sin and their own Cainite lineage, they accused Jesus of being born of fornication rather than admit the necessity for Adam's kinsman Redeemer to be born of a virgin on account of the original sin. Jesus said, "Just as Cain could not receive Abel's truth that he was not Adam's son you do not understand and cannot bear to hear My Word because you too are [physical Serpent's seed vicariously] begotten of your father the Devil, and the lusts of your father you will do. He was a murderer [of Adam's race] from the beginning, and abode not in the truth because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks according to his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies".
Cain's vicarious father Lucifer was the sum of wisdom and beauty (Ezekiel 28:12-15), the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil in the midst of the Garden of Eden. He was God's right-hand man to fellowship with a comprehensive but intellectual knowledge of His plans for creation whereby man would live and mature into God's image by feeding his soul from the Tree of Life in the midst of the Garden who was Michael who is Christ the Word. He lacked the "capstone revelation" that Jesus Christ is the beginning of God, not a second or third person, creating Himself a part of the NEW CREATION, and the first of many God-men. For the Bible is the story of God unfolding Himself from the eternal Spirit alone with His thoughts to their manifestation in the flesh of His glorified Family, New Jerusalem.
Despite His intimate relation to God he did not have a revelation of the true Oneness of the godhead and saw God, Michael, Gabriel and Jesus Christ as a series of different beings rather that different offices of one Being like Father, Son and Holy Ghost. So in order to usurp the eternal Kingdom of the Word destined for Michael, Lucifer incarnate the Serpent who beguiled Eve to initiate his own perpetual kingdom by lust, birth and death.
Like his father the Serpent, Eve's first born, Cain, was a beast. As her son he had a soul but it was unregenerate for he was not in the Book of Life which is Adam's genealogy, and without a KINSMAN redeemer Cain and his offspring are irredeemable. "The Lord set a mark upon Cain, lest any finding him should kill him." That indelible stain is the Jesuitical character of his vicarious father, Satan, intellectual wisdom reasoning against the revealed faith of God's Word without restraint of conscience for "the ends justify the means." One can receive the mark of Cain, which is the mark of the beast, by feeding on as little as one word from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil (Matthew 4:4; Revelation 22:18-19). All creation is the manifestation of God's spoken Word and Lucifer saw how he might usurp God's plan and the destiny of Michael's Kingdom by hybridizing God's Word with his own as in the Apostle's Creed, trinity, and baptism in three Titles, transforming "Spirit and eternal Life" into death (Genesis 1:11, 25; John 6:63).
Like pharaoh, Satan was raised up to give God reason and purpose of being in the glory of Christ Jesus (Exodus 9:16; Romans 9:17) our Kinsman Redeemer (I John 3:6-12; Genesis 3:14-15). Thus "all things work together for good to them that love God, to them that are the called according to His purpose" (Romans 8:28), and the Lord is sifting and proving the seed of men, measuring their free choice against the Absolute of His unchanging Word.
Romans 8:17-18, "If we are God's children, then we are heirs of God and joint-heirs with Christ, provided we suffer with Him in order that we may also be glorified together. For I consider that this temporal suffering is not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed to us." Unless we suffer with Him we cannot reign with Him. You have to suffer to reign. The reason for this is that character simply is never made without suffering. Character is a VICTORY, not a gift. A man without character can't reign because power apart from character is Satanic. But power with character is fit to rule. And since He wants us to share even His throne on the same basis that He overcame and is set down in His Father's throne, then we have to overcome to sit with Him. And the little temporary suffering we go through now is not worthy to be compared to the tremendous glory that will be revealed in us when He comes. Oh, what treasures are laid up for those willing to enter into His kingdom through much tribulation (An Exposition of the Seven Church Ages, p. 117:1).
Man was ordained to rule this earth (Genesis 2:19-20); Jesus Messiah recovered our lost inheritance (Psalm 8:4-8) and Satan is still in possession but will shortly be thrown down (Revelation 12:7-9), bound for a thousand years (Revelation 20:2-3) and then cast into the Lake of Fire where the beast and the false prophet are. Throughout the millennium and the renewed heavens and renewed earth the Serpent will be present but he will be harmless (Isaiah 11:8-9).
Jerusalem, my happy home,
Name ever dear to me,
When shall my labours have an end?
Thy joys when shall I see? nl1001.htm
